Best of NYC Submissions, AVANT-INDIE + ELECTRO ROCK: Arpline

Best of NYC Submissions, AVANT-INDIE + ELECTRO ROCK: Arpline

We have a strong suspicion that Reverb Nation is "stealing" our musical genres - after incorporating the Deli-invented "Mellow Core", we noticed they are now also using our "Avant-Indie" category. It's all good, as long as we get the credit in the "History of Indie Music Journalism" books to come!
But anyway, with the word "Avant-Indie" we refer to artists like Animal Collective or Grizzly Bear that push the indie "envelop" without venturing in 100% experimental territory (because here the word "experimental" next to "music" makes us think about Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn etc. etc. - not indie artists). Electro rockers Arpline conquered the first position here by some distance, and will therefore join the other nominated artists for the final phase of our Best of NYC Emerging Artists 2010 Poll.

Categories: Avant Indie + Electro Rock
Region: NYC + NJ + Long Island
